Ivory Coast international Kolo Toure has edged closer to the Manchester City exit door after reportedly throwing his Community Shield medal into the Villa Park crowd.
The 31-year-old defender was left on the bench as the Premier League champions beat Chelsea 3-2.
And Toure was involved in a furious bust-up with manager Roberto Mancini after the final whistle.
According to the Daily Mirror, pictures were posted on Twitter of fans with what was allegedly the Ivory Coast player's medal.
Toure was overlooked in favour of Stefan Savic for Sunday's clash as goals from Yaya Toure, Carlos Tevez and Samir Nasri sealed a thrilling win.
The former Arsenal defender has 12 months remaining on his contract but City are holding out for £3million for the defender.
That is scaring off potential buyers with Turkish clubs Bursasport and Trabzonspor unable to match the asking price.
